    Menus in CS4 display wrong on vista

    AVB55
      While testing CS4, I notice that whenever I click on any of the left-most menus (file, edit, view, insert) the menu that drops down, is located to the right of the menu-"title". It is a bit difficult to describe what I mean, but when you normally click a menu, it would drop down to the left or right of the menu-"title" based on the room it has on the screen, this still happens, but when it drops down to the right, it also "moves" beyond the menu-"title". The problem with this is, that when you move the mouse down into the menu, it disappears if you are not precisely moving the mouse.
      When the menu drops down to the left, this problem does not occur.
      Again, it is a bit difficult to explain, so I hope you understand the problem.

      ASCII representation of the problem (the dots represent space):

      File
      ......------------------------
      ......New
      ......Open
      ......etc.
      ......-------------------------

          I'm not seeing such on my 3 Vista boxes (2xUltimate, and 1xBusiness).

            Ok, so if it is not a vista problem (i am using premium by the way), what can it be? I don't have this behaviour in any other program.

              No idea. Do you have another Vista box on which you could test this?

                Well, I found the culprit. It has nothing to do with dreamweaver. It was the tablet pc "handedness" settings.
